Coronation Street's most controversial storylines

21 September 2011 8:06 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Carla's rape is the latest in a line of gritty plots - from gunmen to teenage pregnancies, Corrie has never shied away from a challenging storyline

Time was, the most shocking thing on Corrie was Bet Lynch without her makeup, or Hilda Ogden without her curlers. But in the latest in a long line of increasingly controversial storylines, Carla has been raped by the curiously expressionless Frank after calling off their engagement. Carla has had a rough time of it since joining the Street: following her husband's death, her beloved Liam was murdered, she was held hostage by evil Tony Gordon and, just the other week, she drunkenly crashed her car into the bookies. But Corrie's attempts to do "gritty" have met with some concern from fans – and producer Phil Collinson recently vowed to reduce crime levels (this hasn't been entirely successful). But Carla's is not the first controversial storyline
